A woman who used to work for the NHS has been arrested by detectives investigating alleged corrupt payments to public officials.
Scotland Yard said the 52-year-old was arrested at 6am at her home in Derbyshire for suspected misconduct in a public office.
Her arrest is the 70th under Operation Elveden, Scotland Yard's investigation into alleged payments to public officials. It's running in conjunction with Operation Weeting, the Met's phone-hacking inquiry.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has said that a journalist, an HRMC worker and his partner will be charged in relation to Operation Elveden - the Metropolitan Police’s investigation into allegations involving the unlawful provision of information by public officials to journalists.
The CPS said that Clodagh Hartley, a journalist at The Sun newspaper, Jonathan Hall, employed as a Press Officer at Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and Marta Bukarewicz, partner of Mr Hall and not a public official, will be charged with conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office.
It is alleged that between 30 March 2008 and 15 July 2011 The Sun newspaper paid £17,475 to Jonathan Hall, mostly via Marta Bukarewicz, in exchange for the unauthorised disclosure of information obtained as a result of his employment with HMRC.
